Bostik Friends

Bostik is committed to more than manufacturing the right adhesive solution to meet your company’s needs. We are also committed to helping the community.

Bostik Friends is a group of employees that organizes various volunteer opportunities for anyone at Bostik to attend. These events range from the Alzheimer’s Walk to the Milwaukee Riverkeeper Spring Clean-up. Bostik Friends plans one to two events per month and works very closely with the Volunteer Center of Milwaukee, which connects volunteers with nonprofit agencies and organizations that need their services.

Nicole McDonald, who became co-chair of Bostik Friends in 2014 along with Denny Thompson, said the group has seen record employee involvement last year and continues to grow. In speaking about her favorite event, she said it was “Adopt a Child” at the YMCA. This half-day event entailed helping a child who either has a family member with special needs or has special needs himself. It gave parents a chance to get to know each other and allowed children from all backgrounds to play together. McDonald said the best part was how grateful the kids were to have their own “special time” with a volunteer, whether it was playing games, listening to music or doing puzzles. “It was the most heartwarming event,” she said.

The importance of the committee is not lost on Bostik employees. In the company’s common area is a large wall made of the handprints of those who have volunteered at events. Going forward, Bostik Friends hopes to continue to recruit new volunteers, host engaging events and increase volunteer hours, which are currently at an all-time high.


This group is Bostik’s connection to the community. “We are the helping hands of Bostik. We want to continuously give back,” said McDonald.
